NOW HIRING: Account Executive
Are you a charismatic person who has a passion for storytelling and cultivating meaningful relationships? Are you tenacious and good at influencing others? If so, then you might be our perfect Account Executive! The candidate for this role will join our full-time commercial production team as a vital member of our creative, entrepreneurial culture.
This role requires strong critical thinking skills and an ability to elegantly handle multiple projects at once while maintaining structure and accuracy. We’ve also learned that deductive reasoning in this role will take you far. We need someone who can bring a sharp focus to account service by listening intently to Clients and then co-creating/communicating a well-conceived roadmap for our team to follow.
If any of this sounds like you – APPLY.
If this does not sound like you – DON’T.
Our close-knit Team of fifteen works with a creative partner pool of directors, writers, cinematographers, and other bright creatives–allowing us to provide our Clients with a customized team to fit their unique needs. This is a great entry level position for a candidate who really wants to learn our industry, especially the ins and outs of production–from concept to creation to distribution.
The Account Executive will work under the supervision of our producers to provide top-notch service to our awesome and diverse set of Clients. The ideal candidate will be an impatient self-starter, someone who not only responds to, but also anticipates the needs of our producers and Clients. He or she must also thrive under pressure while maintaining accuracy and charisma.
Red Productions has all the trappings of a 21st century creative office: dogs, a kegerator, fun music streaming for most of the day and open workspaces. We also have quiet time to dig in and focus. Oh, and 401k, health benefits, vacation/sick time, and profit sharing. And, you’re given two days of paid time off for serving the community through what we call “giving back days”.
This job is located at our studio in Fort Worth with around ten percent travel.
